Nice video review here from Britec09


@Zou1
I believe this is mainly for virus and malware removal.
Specialised tools would be probably better suited TDSSkiller / Gmer etc.

Is this tool for viruses only, or can it go up against TDL4 and Zero Access Rootkit?
Very much possible because UVK includes Kaspersky TDSSkiller on its Automatic Anti-Malware scans.
Not to mention it also has Hitman Pro with 5 different scanning engines, 7 engines if you count Avast and BitDefender separate included in G Data or even 8 engines if you want to count Webroot included in Prevx. ( Ikarus, G Data, Dr Web, Emsisoft, Prevx).

Of coarse with all of the manual removal options, advanced users could easily remove TDL4 and Zero Access Rootkit in Windows Safe Mode with Networking using UVK, since UVK can repair any network problems.

Thanks.:D

NEW version of UVK: v2.5.2.0. Download link in the first topic's Post, please.

Changelog: v2.5.2.0:

* 'Added a new fix: Fix the SubSystems registry key. Also available from a UVK script with the command <FixSubSystemsKey>.
* Updated the Hitman Pro automatic scan for the version 3.6.
* Updated the Repair script options in the Automatic anti-malware scans section. Now it includes more than 30 fixes that can be executed after the third party applications scans.
* Also added the option to choose the path where the logs will be moved to and to select all the fixes, none, or revert to the default selection.
* Updated the UVK fixes section, Now all the fixes in the System repair section have been added to the fixes list. As you may guess, I'm planning to remove the System repair section in the next version, replacing it with a new section with new features. Just wait and see :).
* Increased the height of the UVK fixes list view, and separated the fixes in several sections, for a better view.
* Automated the installation of the Microsoft Fixit Center. Now it's done with no user interaction.
* Updated the Insert full system repair script feature in the Run UVK scripts section and in the Log analyzer Now it has more fixes, some of them recent.'

I would remind you that UVK works in OS: XP, Server 2003, Vista, Server 2008, Windows 7. All 32 or 64 bits.

Size: 5.41 MB according to developer, but it has 5,29 MB only in my Program Files folder, and with BlueScreenView Nirsoft utility (84.4 KB)..

Changelog v2.6.0.0:

* General internal debugging and improvement.
* Renamed the UVK fixes section UVK system repair
* Removed the old UVK system repair section, replacing it by a new section: UVK tools. This new section is divided in three sub-sections:

/ File tools: Allows to select a file and perform several actions: Display all sorts of info on the file, get the file's MD5 VirusTotal hash report, grant and deny access to the file, get more info on the file over the internet, and delete the file.

/ Registry tools: Mostly the same as above, but for a registry key, instead of a file.

/ System restore management: Allows to perform several diferent tasks related to the system restore: Enumerate the existing restore points, Select and delete one or several restore points, create restore points, enable or disable the system restore.

* Added a new feature: UVK running password protection. Requested by several users. The password can be set in the UVK options section. This option is only available for the users who have bought the UVK branding key.
* Added a new option to the Toggle Enable/Disable combo box: System restore.
* Added two more custom commands: <DisableSystemRestore> and <EnableSystemRestore>. Also add them to the Insert(3) Log analyzer's menu.
* Added a new scan section: <ShellMUICache>. It's the list of the most recently run programs. Added to the Startup entries and services, and the Scan and create log sections.
* Create a method for updating the urls for Mbam, SAS, HitmanPro, Java, Flash, DirectX and .Net without needing to update the application.
* Updated the Mbam latest version check.
* Updated the VirusTotal file MD5 hash report.
* Removed the AutoUpdate.exe file from the project. The automatic updates are now done through the main application (UVK_en.exe).

Thanks for the update, why don't you submit UVK to download sites like Softpedia and MajorGeeks?

Good day.:D
 
I

illumination

I started to download this tool to take it for a spin, to find it is not digitally signed.. I make it a practice not to trust just any program, especially those not signed. So for the time being, i will be sticking with CCE..

Also - in UVK Process Manager, if I click on 'Verify file signature' for UVK_en.exe, I get little window with : 'Signed: Carifred'.

So, thewolfsmith72 ..

'Any changelogs for v.2.7.0.1?'


''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' UVK 2.7 CHANGELOG:

v2.7.0.1:

General internal debugging and improvement.
Fixed several important internal bugs.
Improved the file signature verifying function. Should work faster now..

v2.7.0.0:

General internal debugging and improvement.
Updated the Kill all feature in the Process manager section. You can now choose one of three options:

Kill all non trusted processes - This feature verifies the digital signatures of the processes to kill. If the signer is part of an internal trusted signers list, the process will not be killed. The list includes some trusted publishers like Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, Opera, Hewlett Packard, Acer, etc.

Kill all non essencial processes - Already present in previous versions.

Kill all non critical processes - Already present in previous versions.

Renamed the Startup entries and services section Startup entries and scheduled tasks. This section now manages the sheduled tasks instead of the active sevices.

Added a new feature in this section: Hide/Show Microsoft signed files. This can highly reduce the number of entries in the list, making easier to detect infected files.

Renamed the Drivers and sheduled tasks section Windows services and drivers. This section now manages all the services and drivers.

Added buttons in this section for full service management: Delete service (and file, if selected), Stop service, Start service. Pause service, Resume service and Set startup type,

Added a feature to choose the services to display: You can choose between Show all services and drivers, Hide inactive services and drivers, Hide Microsoft services and drivers and Hide inactive and Microsoft services and drivers.

The Stop all non Microsoft services feature has been moved to this section.

Added a new custom command: <KillNonTrustedProcesses>. Does the same as the Kill all non trusted processes feature of the Process manager mentioned above.
Updated the download urls for Mbam, Combofix and Flash.
Updated the Mbam scan automation for the latest version.
Updated the Delete or replace file or folder section. When selecting Don't recycle, Now users can choose not to display the warning dialog box again.
Fixed a bug in the HitmanPro scan when run from a UVK script (important).
Added a new file context menu: File information. Now you can get all the info needed to check if a file is infected straight from the Windows explorer. This includes verifying the file's signature, the VirusTotal MD5 report and lots of other info. This option is only available for the users who have bought the UVK branding key.'
